If you love country style, antiquing excursions, craft demos…and piña coladas with tiny (gingham!) drink umbrellas, then mark your calendars! On March 12, 2017, the Country Living Coast-to-Coast Cruise, aboard the Holland America Nieuw Amsterdam, sets sail from Fort Lauderdale for seven nights of bringing the magazine’s content to life and giving cruisers exclusive access to Country Living editors, contributors, and special guests.
A LIFE CHANGING ENTERTAINING WEEK AT SEA!
Joining us on board for this exciting week will be the sassy and spirited JUNK GYSPIES, JOLIE AND AMIE SIKES!

JOIN RACHEL BARRETT, EDITOR IN CHIEF OF COUNTRY LIVING!
“I can’t wait to pack my bags for our first-ever Country Living Coast-to-Coast Cruise,” said Rachel Barrett, Editor-in-Chief of Country Living. “First, I truly believe we have the best readers in the country, so the idea of hanging out with them for seven days to talk about all things Country Living—all while taking in the Caribbean sunshine!—is particularly exciting. When you combine that with farm-to-table fare, country-fied cocktails, antiquing excursions, craft demos, and design consultations, what more could you want?! It’s essentially a floating Pinterest board! And we’re already dreaming up clever ways to fold those bath towels into adorable farm animals.”
Be one of the first 100 people to register, and you’ll be invited to an exclusive cocktail party featuring all of our VIP guests.
(Psst: More special guests will be announced soon! We will sell out!)
See you on the Lido Deck – Poolside!
